SAN FRANCISCO -- Apple CEO Steve Jobs on Tuesday noted that Apple sold over five million copies of Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard during its first three months of availability, making it the most successful OS X release in the company's history. He also touted four million iPhones sold since the product's introduction last June, giving the device nearly 20 percent of the U.S. smartphone market for the quarter ending September 2007. According to Mr. Jobs, that puts Apple in second place, behind Blackberry maker RIM, which commands 39 percent of the market.
Mr. Jobs expects even better results from December quarter sales, noting that Apple sells 20,000 iPhones each day.
